When it comes to keeping pipelines in top operating condition, the operator of two gas field developments offshore Malaysia has its work cut out. To make certain that the networks continue to deliver natural gas to the millions of residents and businesses in Peninsular Malaysia, dedicated maintenance teams work around-the-clock to monitor the lines for potential integrity threats, executing rigorous maintenance programs.
When several leaking valves were detected across multiple major gas trunk lines, as well as a defective section of feed line piping, the operator moved to replace them safely and quickly. To ensure that gas would flow with minimal disruption while essential repairs were made, the operator retained global pipeline service provider T.D. Williamson (TDW).
